As an entrepreneur, you’re well aware of the expression “time is money.” Every second that you spend taking care of administrative tasks takes away from income that you could be earning for your business. You can’t take your business to the next level without mastering time management.
We want 2017 to be your most successful year yet, which is why we’re sharing these must-try time management tools to send your productivity levels soaring:
Basecamp is a tool that we use externally with our clients and internally with our inbound marketing team. In our opinion, this time management tool is the best on the market for managing projects. Basecamp is full of features that allow you to organize tasks and keep everyone in the loop of individual responsibilities.
The most successful entrepreneurs live by their calendars. Google Calendar is a free tool that can be downloaded onto your smartphone or accessed via the web, and you can load it up with all of your upcoming events. Create multiple calendars to organize deadlines for various teams within your organization, and you can choose to share these calendars or keep them private–it’s up to you.
